RE: AskHive: What are the last three things you bought online?

in Ask the Hive10 months ago (edited)

Face masks
Evening dress


Can you ship some of those to the Nation Health Service here, they seem to be woefully short of gear at present :(

An evening dress, in advance of those summer evenings we are going to get to spend time in?

The evening dress was for my daughter's prom.

The face masks are available easily online from literally hundreds of vendors in Thailand. UK shortages are a political choice, sadly.

If anyone wants to buy, tThe crowd I'd recommend is called Flying Squirrel Outfitters. You can find them on facebook. They can ship anywhere globally with DHL in under a week. It is truly absurd that we have no shortages, while so-called developed countries are suffering.

We also have drive thru covid testing for $60 - results within 5 hours. Only 2500 cases and only 43 deaths, despite 300,000+ chinese from Wuhan & surrounds being here for Chinese New Year. Why? We've all been wearing masks since January. Heavy fines for going out without one.

Thanks for the info. Still no compulsory mask wearing in the UK, and I'm not sure it will ever be enforced.

Test are taking an age to sort out too, I'm more likely to have one at work before anything else.

I hope your daughter likes her dress and has an awesome Prom!

The Prom will be a Masked Ball, when it finally happens. At least we have THE dress.
